    I cracked open two boxes which have been in storage nine months (68-73 degrees, 65RH): Cusano 18 Maduro and Red Label Maduro. The Cusanos are perfect, shiney and sweet and smoked great. The Red Label wrappers are dry as a bone. I fired one up, and as dry as the wrapper was it smoked wet, so I...

    Being new to cigars...I am working towards buying a humidor. Been reading alot on this site. Alot of people using coolers and tupperware with success. I am currently holding about 20 good cigars which I do not want to lose or allow to go dog ass dry. When I am able to get a humidor will these...

    Been a very casual cigar smoker for a long time, and has such have admittedly not always taken the best of care for my cigars (i.e. letting them sit in my smaller humidor for long periods of time... without ever maintaining the humidor). Some of the cigars still feel OK, because for the past...

    I went on a week long business trip with my wife to Washington DC, and just got home. Due to some quick thinking by my Letter Carrier :banghead: disaster was averted! Being keenly aware of suspicious packages, my letter carrier's quick thinking saved my home :dizzy: from destruction by his...

    So over the past few months I have been working to introduce most of my buddies to the world of cigars. They saw my enthusiasm, got interested, and I shoved them down the slope. I was hanging out with several of them on Friday and spur of the moment, asked them if they wanted to grab their...

    Talk about a life saver. It's been a hell of a week so far and it looks like it's going to continue that way. Haven't had time to think and I was expecting to get my order in from cigarbid yesterday, but it has now been lost somewhere in transit to final destination for over 24 hours now. The...
  7. General Pipe Forum
    Ugh I just broke my brand new pipe (well new to me) It broke right where the stem connects to the shank when it rolled off my desk which was no more than 3 feet off the ground. Anyway is there anything practical that can be done to fix it? Could I epoxy it? Buy a new stem? or would it be...
  8. Habanos Discussion
    My guy at the local B&M gave me a couple of cohiba madura 5's and sure enough they had the wrong number of rows of white dots. I am not even sure he is aware that they are fake. He is not the most knowledgeable about cigars. He though a triple maduro was just made with 3 maduro leafs. I think I...
  9. General Cigar Discussion
    The best laid plans, right? After a few hours at an indoor, air conditioned Beerfest, my two best friends and I were headed to the local cigar lounge. Up jumps an unexpected child's birthday party. I divert to that with my two youngest kids. While there I spend the entire time helping that...

    This morning I was doing bills. We just bought Kerri a PT Cruiser and I got my new insurance bill. $991.00 for 6 months for my 04 Envoy and her 07 PT Cruiser. I just about threw up. I got online and hammered things out until they were "apples to apples". There were at least 4 companies that...
  11. Cigar Questions
    I smoked a Fuente Hemingway today, and the wrapper cracked, flaked, and came apart. I'm hoping I got the worst one of the bunch but I'm worried. Can I save the rest of the box using higher humidity storage, or are they toast? HELP!
  12. General Cigar Discussion
    Friend of mine gave up cigars and went completely to pipes. I got his cigar collection. It's only about 10 - 20 cigars. But there are some nice one that I would like to revive. He had them in a cheap humidor and neglected his beads this winter. I don't know how dry it got in there but I do...

    My grandfather used to smoke 'gars constantly (probably why I like the smell to this day). I remember he used to save/collect his cigar bands. He stored some of them in his workshop down the basement in large glass pickle jars. Must have had 15-20 large jars, filled to the brim with un-opened...

  15. General Cigar Discussion
    I was up checking mail in our R.V. park, put out in bulk under last name. Anyhow while I was searching for my mail I seen a cigar catalog, assumed it was mine and grabed it. Low and behold it was a thompson's and it was someone else's. I guess I saved them from the horrible, terrible and nasty...

    I have a friend that was going through his garage several months ago and he found an unopened box of Upmann cigars from Cuba no less. Keep in mind that this garage is in Houston where the temperature gets pretty hot. He said he couldn't remember how long they have been there. I told him to...

    Tonight was nice. So I went out for a midnight smoke with the dogs. Sat on the porch with a Fuente Churchill Maduro. Not ten minutes later I see this guy walk up the street, wearing a hooded jacket. He walks into one of my neighbors driveways. I put my hand on my dogs collar--not to bark. I'm...
